This isn't the best example ever, but most S. flava var. rugelii's can become quite yellow as long as you give them the right conditions:
Posted Image notice the plants in the front-right section of the tub are slightly more yellow than the ones in the back-this is because they get more sun than the ones in the back.
Certainly, a few clones have the ability to turn more yellow than others. This tub has many different clones , and there's one in the middle of the picture with a well-defined cut throat that is completely yellow from head to toe, whereas the other clones are bright yellow on the lid with greenish-yellow "bodies"


S. flava var. maxima, as mentioned above, is also another very yellow candidate, but again, I must stress that having the right environmental conditions (ie. full sun, very pure water, correct pH of media, etc) are key to getting them very yellow. When grown under twin wall polycarbonate, the yellow can also become more intense because the UV rays that would otherwise bleach out the color are filtered out.
